Subject: Organically Numinous
Thomas Park covers a lot of ground in this organically numinous album as he conjures new sounds from field recordings and sounds derived from water, wood, and metal. Certainty and Self-Guided are highly rhythmic and percussive oriented with the former being smooth and upbeat and the latter granular and brooding. Drips Dropped and Windchimes Dropped Ext are near pristine minimal meditations based on water and metal, respectively. Chop and Shake is an fittingly named minimal exploration of jerky processed sounds. Drops Not Whips and Between Floors are rather abstract percussive experiments where wood sounds are a key ingredient, although Between Floors includes some beautiful metallic tones in its final few minutes. A real highlight for me is Meditation B whose deep resonating beats and melancholic chant stays with me long after the music has stopped playing. If youre looking for something noisy, dense, and chaotic, then tracks like Two Worlds, Sheets and Poundings, Quiet Thunderstorm (obviously an oxymoron), and Window Rainy Day will not disappoint you. A very satisfying and unique release from Mystified. -LAJ-
